How to Make Your Gut Microbiome Healthier in 2020

At the beginning of the year, almost everyone is concerned about improving their health but not many people take into account the state of gut microbiome which plays the most significant role in our overall health.How to Make Your Gut Microbiome Healthier in 2020

When the microbiome is unbalanced, some functions of the body might be disrupted and this may lead to developing such conditions as obesity, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and others.

To support and to diverse your microbiome, stick to the following tips backed by science:

  1. Eat enough of fruits and vegetables, as the fiber contained in them helps to break down carbohydrates and to form a healthy microbiome.
  2. Add resistant starch to your diet, such as bread and pasta. They are broken down and absorbed quickly and a fraction of this type of starch is resistant to digestion and acts similarly to fiber.
  3. Find a fiber that suits you the most, as all microbiomes, as well as fibers, are different.
  4. Exercise regularly. It will help not only your heart and your brain but also your digestion system. A recent study found that some of the lactate produced during exercise can influence some gut bacteria.
  5. Include probiotic foods — foods containing microorganisms — into your diet. These foods can be yogurt, sauerkraut or kimchi and they may also provide a health-promoting effect.
